Warming Quinoa Porridge
- 30g quinoa flakes
- 300ml almond milk (homemade)
- 1/2 - 1 tsp organic molasses
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 100-150ml filtered water
- 5 raspberries
- 1 tsp peanut butter
- 1 tsp creamy almond butter
As the winter is fast approaching (or if you live in Ireland like us, then it never left us!) comfort foods must be making a hasty return to your weekly menu. To help you ease back into colder months here's a quick porridge to try. A spoonful of hulled hemp seeds, dairy-free coconut cream and blueberries are delicious toppings for this porridge too.
Bring the quinoa flakes, milk, cinnamon, molasses and 100ml of the water to the boil, simmer for 5 minutes. Keep stirring to ensure it doesn't stick to the bottom or sides. You may need to add some more water, depending on how thick your homemade milk is.
Spoon into a bowl and add the toppings.
Replace the toppings with 1 tsp coconut yoghurt, 6-8 blueberries and 1 tsp hulled hemp seeds.
REPLACE THE ALMOND MILK
It's not always possible to have homemade milk in the fridge, a handy alternative is KoKo dairy-free milk about 300g. If you'd prefer more sweetness use 300ml organic unsweetened rice milk.
